Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, is a new and innovative skin facial rejuvenation procedure taking the beauty industry by storm. It is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation that involves the use of a microneedling device to reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles, treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, hair loss and leads to improved volume, strength, resiliency, smoother texture and a brighter complexion to create healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING/(CIT)
COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY?
Microneedling is a treatment to address things like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. It encourages your body to boost its production of collagen. The result – firm and toned skin on your face and neck.
This is a minimally invasive treatment and one of the most powerful ways to combat aging. It stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to healthy new skin, significantly reducing fine lines, spots, and wrinkles. Microneedling is not different from CIT. Microneedling is also known as skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).
Skin is composed of two primary layers: the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the outermost protective layer, and the dermis is the layer below that. It is home to the essential functioning components of the skin. This layer is primarily responsible for producing collagen and elastin.
Microneedling dramatically increases the amount of healthy collagen or elastin in the skin. During the process of microneedling, small micro-channels are created in the skin to activate the body’s natural healing response. This starts the regeneration cycle of the skin leading to the release of growth factors within the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, collagen and elastin production is accelerated to heal the wounds, which in turn build new layers of healthy skin cells.
What about downtime?
In most cases, clients will experience post-procedure redness, which could last 2-3 days, depending on skin condition and depth treated. After about 12-24 hours makeup can be worn that will easily cover any pinkness in the skin. You will have some dry flaking skin a couple days after the treatment.
WHEN IS MICRONEEDLING A GOOD CHOICE?
Microneedling can be the ideal choice of treatment if your skin has lost its firmness, and/or you notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also an effective form of therapy for open pores.
If you believe your skin could benefit from microneedling, talk to one of our medical professionals to find out if you are an ideal candidate. For more information regarding microneedling or to schedule a consultation, please feel free to reach out to us and one of our staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
What areas can be treated?
Botox® is most commonly used to erase forehead wrinkles, the glabellar lines (those lines between the eyes), and crows’ feet. It is also used on chin creases, the neckline, and for smile lift and eyebrow lift. A not-so-well-known use for Botox® is to combat hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating). In many cases, clients enjoy relief from hyperhidrosis for up to two years after treatment.
How much does it cost?
As with most other purchases, you get what you pay for with Botox®. You’ve all seen those ads offering Botox® for unbelievably low prices. How do they do it? Some practitioners may over-dilute Botox® with a saline solution to do more treatments with less product. But the results are less-effective and shorter-lasting. At LivingYoung Center, you will always get the proper dosage of Botox®, diluted to the exact specifications of the manufacturer. We don’t take any short-cuts when it comes to your appearance or your satisfaction. Botox® is sold by the unit at $11 per unit. Women usually require fewer units per treatment area than men.
